of the weekend. >> reporter: now down to my colleague bruce leshan in virginia beach. >> the storm chasers may be disappointing that the storm is tracking farther out to sea and weakening, but there are people here at virginia beach who are happy. see back there the scaffolding, the port-o-potties, for the american music festival. and take a look. gloria gainer. reo speedwagen, pat bena tar, slated to take the stage this weekend, starting on friday, hours after earl is expected to blast through. the old saying you'll be lucky if you get married in a rain storm. this couple figures marrying with a hurricane coming is like hitting the lottery. >> i got married in sunlight. well i got married in a rain storm. yeah, well i got married in a hurricane. >> reporter: a cacophony of hurricane preps in the beach and dead quiet in the emergency center. managers are hoping that the track holds and earl slips by in the dark without waking the neighbors. but people here are haunted by the specter of hurricane bonnie in 1998. forecasts had predicted she would spare virginia beach too. >> we went home and dec

to norfolk, virginia beach. passing the delmarva tomorrow. midday tomorrow, yeah, it will be rough through noon. after noon things will improve as the storm heads to massachusetts where they are under a hurricane warning for cape cod. an then the storm will be out of here quickly. the next 24 hours will be the worst around here. but the weekend will bring big changes once earl passes. i will have those details in a few minutes. thank you. >>> so far governor o'malley says it is unlikely that ocean city will have to be evacuated but the government is advising drivers not to drive to or from that area during the storm. scott broom has the latest on preparations that are occurring there. scott, what can you tell us? >> i'm outside of the emergency operations center in ocean city where there is a 1:00 briefing of officials. they are on the same page as governor o'malley. you can feel a little humidity building and a little breeze coming in from the east. that's a hint of the tropics and aahing of what's to come. as i said earlier, ocean city officials had talked to us and barring any big chang
hariggan is in virginia beach, virginia, where they are awaiting earl's heavy rains and high winds. steve, what's it like so far? >> reporter: none of that rain hitting yet. the winds have gotten slightly stronger with gusts up to 30 or 40 miles per hour. they expect the eye of the storm to pass 100 miles offshore here in virginia beach. so they don't expect too much physical damage. 200 national guard troops have been moved to the coastline in case they are necessary and shelters have been set up for as many as 20,000 people. that doesn't look like it's going to happen so far. throughout the day, we saw people boarding up their houses with plywood or hard plastic. but a lot more cureiosity. even righted now, we have a number of people walking along the boardwalk or the beach. gusts of winds, but not a sense of impending peril here. some real concerns about the economic potential that this storm could bring, some major events scheduled for this weekend, a large concert and a large half marathon. so travelers expected here. they are going to have difficulty traveling throughout this storm.

that glove glancing blow of earl. emergency managers in virginia beach were worried that earl may slap them with a right hook. tens of thousands of tourists left before the big weekend but bruce leshan reports in hindsight they probably could have ridden it out. >> reporter: earl is just about out of virginia beach and they are getting back to business. the business here, of course, tourism. they are pulling away the sand berm they set up around the stage for the american music festival. tens of thousands of people, and they are expecting chicago, reo speed waggen and pat benatar. it kicks off tonight. call it dancing with earl. even at 3:00 a.m., people were out romancing the storm. in the darking winds gusted to a high of maybe 20 miles an hour. at daybreak, thed a venturous took to the beach. even walt waltzing in the water. awed by the waves and majesty of a hurricane that skirted far enough off the virginia beach ocean front to offer just a cares reinstead of a punch. >> it is something magic about being out there. >> oh, it is. very fresh. don't get it all the time. the wind feels gre

in north carolina as it moves away from the coast, it's going to continue to worsen at virginia beach as well as ocean city, maryland and cape maine, new jersey. the storm is at the bulk of it. you can see on the satellite, i'll loop it for you. the bulk of the system was well to the west. it's 100 miles east of virginia beach. it's the outer most bans on the western side coming through the areas on virginia beach. even the northern neck. it's a category two. it's going to pick up speed. cape cod and nantucket will get the worst of it before moving away. right now, northeast at 16 miles per hour. the watch and advisories remain up. i'm expecting, barbara, i know you are trying to make it there this weekend. winds 60 miles per hour in cape cod. we'll tell you what to expect where the showers are east of 95. >> did they say the islands off massachusetts could take a direct hit? >> not a direct hit but more rain. two to four inches of rain if not more in somexd areas. >> we'll check in with you again. hurricane earl could keep drivers home. you could avoid delays by traveling before noon

a lot. >>> also tracking this for us, we're in virginia beach giving us a look at conditions there. winds are whipping up, bruce. >> yeah, anita, it is hard to believe that we could be looking at tropical storm-force winds here and heavy, heavy rain and flooding in just about 36 hours from right now, because at this point it is a spectacular day down here in virginia beach. earl is about 800 miles behind me out to sea, and the expectation is that it will turn right just off of hatteras. the hurricane watch extends to the north carolina state line which is about 10 to 20 miles from where i stand right now. excuse me, the hurricane warning extends there. and we're in the hurricane watch area. there are red flags flying here. the surf is already dangerous. but as you might imagine, the surfers are having an absolute blast. it is a little bit flat right now, but the sets are about chest high and there are a ton of surfers out. come to the left unsee this giant sand berm they built here. you can perhaps see some of the kids that are playing here. this is a big, big weekend down here in

earl will end up. many people remember back in 2003, let's take a look. this is virginia beach at the time. it was later september when hurricane isabel took over the mid-atlantic area, blasting virginia beach towns before moving up here to visit us. normally that would be a good thing but not considering the size of the storm, even though isabel's center was moving across western maryland and pennsylvania, its circulation was pushing water back up the bay causing epic flooding from annapolis to downtown baltimore. people were out there paddle boating to get around back in 2003. >>> and remember you can always get the latest on earl's path on our website,, we'll have the up-to-the-minute forecast and updates from anywhere earl has an impact. stay with us,, throughout the week. we'll have live team coverage from ocean city starting tomorrow until after earl has passed us by. >> five minutes after 6:00. people in one glen burnie neighborhood are upset, but to be honest anyone will be upset when you hear this story. police are looking for a man who raped
